Jaleelah and Jameelah

Q: Is it permissible to keep the name “jalila”, what is the correct spelling in latin letters for this name and the name “jamila”? Prefably according to Dutch spelling.



Jaleelah means sublime, exalted and great. 

Jameelah means beautiful and attractive.

This is correct spelling. We do not know beyond this.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
